    Default Caption Contest - Win a free Mandolin Cafe ball cap

    Caption this photo of Avi Avital--best entry wins a free Mandolin Cafe ball cap. This is part of a poster for a mandolin workshop/festival he's appearing at in Germany this summer we'll publicize separately. No limit on entries, bribing allowed, no deadline on entries, no WHINING or COMPLAINING. We'll decide a winner when we see the entry we like. Anyone not appearing to be having fun will be asked to leave the room or stand in the corner.

    It may not be Excalibur, and I may not be the Lady Of The Lake, but this tiny object holds a far greater power - music!
